Protein Ginger Cookies Recipe

What will you need for this delicious Protein Ginger Cookies recipe?Vi Ginger Cookies

  • 1 ¼ c. flour (can be wheat, oat, spelt, coconut or almond – we used spelt)
  • 1 ¼ c. Vi-Shake mix or your favorite protein shake mix, dry
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cloves
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ cup oil (canola, olive, grape seed or melted coconut – we used grape seed)
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup blackstrap molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Now here’s what you do to create these tasty Ginger Cookies:

1. Sift flour and spice ingredients together – then stir in protein shake mix

2. Mix all liquid ingredients together and then mix together with dry ingredients

3. Form into a disk and freeze for 30 minutes or chill for an hour.

4. Form into small balls (no need to flatten).

5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 – 12 minutes.

Note: these cookies are so much higher in protein than regular cookies.  We did find that making the small batch worked better than making a quadruple batch!  Maple syrup and molasses add more nutrition than using brown sugar, sugar or corn syrup.
